I am so happy that I finally caved and bought a stamp carving kit! Last night I took it out and made myself a Pi stamp and this morning I sketched out the infinity love design and thinking it might fail, but wanting to try anyway, I made it into a stamp too!  Cheesy I know they are not perfect, but I am incredibly proud of myself right now  Smiley

Progression of the Pi stamp:

First stamping of the Infinity Love:

Finished Infinity Love, with a quarter for size reference:

And some fun tags I made with the Infinity Love stamp  Cheesy

I am so happy because now I don't have to go crazy looking for a specific stamp design, I can just make my own!  Cheesy I have been dreaming about a nerdy tag collection for my etsy shop, and now I'm almost there  Smiley

Any thoughts/critiques welcome! And if anyone knows how to mount stamps I'd love to know!

Thanks for looking!  Cheesy

Ah!  I love the Infinity Love design.

Good work on the tags!  (I should get some tags ready in terms of my store...)

I handcarve stamps, knit and have organic catnip.

Great job! And I don't think they look nerdy at all...
What's great is that you wanted to learn to carve and followed through by buying the stamp carving kit and DID IT!
You have a right to be proud of yourself!

Poly-tastic!  I LOVE the infinite love heart, I've always thought it was beautiful, and your stamp is an awesome example of it too  Smiley   Grin
